“Custom made high-voltage tesla coil.
This is NOT A TOY!!!
This coil produces 12-13" plasma discharges at 250,000 volts off the discharge teminal. Would be good for a science or electronics classroom or even a university.
WARNING! If you purchase this item you are responisbile for it's effects and are hereby warned not to use it near sensitive electronics or near people with pace-makers or medical implants. I would advise building a faraday cage around it before using it and grounding the tank to it's own ground rod.
That being said, the price is firm.
It comes with a small roll of 29GA magnet wire for winding new coils and an additional discharge sphere.
There is a replaceable 2.5Mh choke within the unit that I can give you the name of the electronics shop where you can buy replacements if needed. They're cheap.
This unit currently has a freshly-wound secondary on it and the larger of the two discharge spheres mounted on it. (Smaller one is shown in picture)
Some cool tricks can be done with this coil. Florescent light bulbs will illuminate in your hands at a distance and clear light bulbs will look just like
the plasma balls you see at Spencer's gifts and elsewhere.
A warning again though...the primary coil puts out 6000 volts that can be dangerous or even fatal under certain circumstances.
Again...THIS IS NOT A TOY!!
Took me months to build this in a machine shop. PRICE IS FIRM
Tank is stainless steel.
